Kids+pens+leather= BEATING!!!!! :D

What car do you have??? I would try using something like windex or something, and then follow it up with a leather conditioner...

What have you tried so far???

The main thing is, your most likely gonna have to use a harsh chemical to get it off, and its VITAL you put some leather conditioner on after it.....

NOOOOO, dont use a harsh chemical what so ever.....ill tell you how to get it out...GARENTEED. Go to the store and buy yourself the (MR.CLEAN ERASER) it is the best cleaning product out there.....and while your at it clean the armrest on the door and steering wheel too.....you wont believe how much dirt comes up.

It will dull because of the nasty skin oils that are taken out...follow up by useing a leather cleaner/conditioner.

100% mineral spirits. Follow it with leather conditioner. Works like a charm... but make sure it is pure 100% mineral spirits. Look for it in the paint section of any hardware store.

MR CLEAN ERASER......CMON just do it, its cheaper then the mineral spirts and you can take scuffs off of anything.

If you want to spend the money here is a product to remove ink from leathermagic......

Try "oops, multi-purpose cleaner"-

when all else has failed me, that has worked. Also, furniture stores sell leather cleaning kits that come with a lipstick/ink/etc cleaner.

Hairspray is the best ink remover.Get Aquanet in the white can..spray it on wipe it off,after a few times the ink will be gone.If the ink is stuck in the tiny lines use a toothbrush to get it out.Use a leather conditioner after the hairspray or you'll have a dull spot but it will return to normal after a few days.

I started cleaning the leather seats in my car. I used a blow dryer to warm them up and hot, soapy water. People on my block are literally stopping to see the seats that I've finished. I am going to post pictures when I'm finished (probably in 2 weeks at the rate I'm going).

Supa, make sure you condition your seats after that ! That damn hairdryer will dry the **** out of that leather quicker than you can blink !!

I detailed for many years and you need to find a leather "pen" stick. They make a stick like a crayon that is designed to remove ink from leather they also have special ones for lipstick......upholstery and furniture stores will have them
